Another summer weekend has come and gone and here I am, back at work, waiting for the weekend. Lucky for me, I have off this Friday (happy summer Friday to me!) so I plan to head down to the beach for some quality time with my parents and pup. I’ve been doing a lot of traveling lately and I really haven’t been able to slow down. From a jam-packed house on Fourth of July weekend to a wedding weekend with up north, I can’t say I’ve gotten much sleep. I’ve noticed, that with my lack of well-rested weekends I’ve become a bit more anxiety-ridden when Monday rolls around. I’m trying to figure out a way to minimize my anxiety during the weekend and I realized last night while spending time with a close friend that I have to begin planning some fun activities or yoga sessions after work. Often times, I come home from work and think about work. Yesterday evening was filled with laughs and good food and it has made me calm and relaxed. It’s super easy to let work consume you, it’s where we spend most of our time, but it doesn’t have to be all we think about and I needed to give myself that important reminder. As I begin to pack and look forward to a relaxing weekend, I can assure you I’ll be donning this Pure Jill printed tiered linen dress. It’s cute, comfortable and casual making it perfect for nights spent by the beach. And I wasn’t lying when I said I would be wearing these Franco Sarto wedges non-stop–sorry not sorry. But in all seriousness, as continue on with your work weeks, be sure to take care of yourself. We only have one life and it’s meant to be lived–so enjoy it all and make the best of every moment–it’ll be gone before you know it. And who really wants to reminisce about how much they sat and thought about work?

WORK WEEK EDIT

DSC_0095 edited1DSC_0085 editedDSC_0094editedDSC_0111 editedDSC_0113editedDSC_0117Details: Embroidered linen and rayon top c/o J. Jill, similar here  | American Eagle white denim shorts, similar here |

This morning was a rough one, with the rainy weather and muggy temps I almost decided today wasn’t worth a cute outfit..I said ALMOST. To be honest with you, I don’t think we should have to work during the summer months. Summer is short enough as it is, why don’t we just work Monday-Wednesday and have off Thurs-Sunday, right? I think that’s manageable enough. The only thing I really care to wear during the summer is my bathing suit, and since that’s not acceptable most places– a cute linen top like my embroidered linen one from J. Jill is the perfect layer. I’m in a midweek rut right now, the weekend is so close yet so far and I’m ready to ditch my work wear for the beach.

Get me to Friday!!!!!

WEEKEND WEAR

DSC_0968 editedDSC_0973 editedDSC_0976 editedDSC_0972 editedDSC_0993DSC_0988 editedDetails: J. Jill textured-stripe linen shirt c/o, here  | Garage Clothing boyfriend jeans, here  | Pure Jill d’Orsay flats c/o J. Jill, here |

Lately, I’ve been taking full advantage of the leisure that comes with weekends and have been adjusting my weekend style for the better. Instead of getting hung up on the ‘perfect’ outfit, I’ve been wearing  what feels right. My Garage Clothing boyfriend jeans have become my yoga pants’ replacement (yes, I said yoga pants!) they are just as comfortable and there’s no judgement passed. As you can tell,  I’ve been all about linen this summer—it’s light, easy and effortless. In fact, my striped J.Jill linen shirt has been serving as my summer “overcoat”, I’ve been pairing it over everything from a simple tee to my bathing suit. The neutral grey and white stripes help highlight the fun subtle colors of red, yellow and soft pink, making it a definitive summer staple.

MONDAY MUSINGS

IMG_2228 editedIMG_2223 editedIMG_2257 editedIMG_2312 editedIMG_2303 editedIMG_2349 editedIMG_2379%20editedDetails: Pure Jill linen kimono in white c/o J. Jill, here  | paisley mix print joggers (old) quiksilver via Lulu’s, similar here  | Ray-ban aviators, here  |

After spending the weekend up in Lake Congamond in Southwick, MA it’s seriously brutal coming back to reality. With a weekend full of canoeing, summer ale and french fries, you could say I’ve been bit by the summer bug. Needless to say, my excessive eating of salty foods has me feeling a little fluffy this morning. So while I fully intend on spending this Monday day-dreaming of  relaxing by the water with a good book, I decided the least I could do was dress as if I were. As you know I’ve been on quite the linen kick lately, so I pulled out my white linen kimono from J. Jill and paired it with the obvious choice– my paisley mix print joggers. It’s the perfect light-weight look, and while this is particularly an oversized outfit, it doesn’t appear sloppy or ill-fitting. It’s sleek, comfy and easy—no sign of fluffy-ness here! I hope you’re recovering better than I am from this beautiful weekend.

Wishing you a very short Monday!

LINEN DAZE

IMG_0979 editedIMG_0967 editedIMG_1027 editedIMG_1053 editedIMG_1090 editedIMG_1108 editedDetails: Yarn-dyed linen ‘big shirt’ in freesia/white c/o J. Jill, here  | Banana Republic graphic tee (on sale!!) here | Forever 21 acid wash skinny jeans in light grey, here |

There’s nothing better than walking around the city in nothing  but a light-weight linen shirt. Goodbye puffy coat, it’s been real. This lax look consists of a graphic tee that serves as a sweet reminder to never stop dreaming and always continue to work for what you want; life’s really too short not to. And I took it back to the 90’s with these light grey acid wash jeans;I totally felt like DJ Tanner— and how could I have completed this outfit with out my chucks!? Since spring has officially sprung I can’t imagine ever wearing winter layers or snow boots again. It’s so liberating to walk around coatless and with bare ankles. And I think I’ve met my match with this baby blue linen shirt. It’s comfortably sophisticated, can be paired over a bathing suit or dressed up with with wide leg pants—the options are endless.

Here’s to endless iced coffees, coatless days, and linen loves!
